As coincidence would have it, JNN released Phillip Wilkerson's Penumbra just in time for the February 9, 2009 full moon. A full moon which, as the universe would have it, coincided with a Penumbral Lunar Eclipse visible in eastern Europe, Asia, Australia, the Pacific, and western North America. favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 1 reviews ) Topic: minimal, glitch, generative, abstract, experimental, live improv, creative commons, just not...
Somewhere toward the end of one chapter and the beginning of a new one I found the strength to return to music and focus on creating a longform ambient piece that would reflect the sense of calm I had regained following a major crisis in my life. I came across a message posted on a blog (of all places) that seemed to speak directly to me and Complex Silence 15 was created while this thought was drifting through my head: "Peace. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise,... favoritefavoritefavoritefavoritefavorite ( 2 reviews ) Topics: ambient, drone, soundscape, light ambient, longform

"Just five years ago, Thomas Park took an interest in my ambient music efforts and invited me to participate in the Constant Series on his Treetrunk Records netlabel. http://treetrunkrecords.wordpress.com/ By way of providing some background and definition, a Constant is a longform, minimal drone that takes a less is more approach.

Digital data has a lifecycle all its own. And oddly enough, the digital lifecycle mirrors the organic. Every digital bit of data experiences: being born; fighting to survive within the world where it finds itself; interfacing with other data or with the physical world; and then inevitably--it ends. It is deleted, forgotten, or lost. Like all organic life, data has a beginning and therefore, at some point, must also experience an ending.

Leading-edge artist Phillip Wilkerson furnishes a great entry to the "Constant" series with "Constant 14". This one is light and shimmery-- and very easy to listen to-- with beautiful harmonics. "Constant" pieces, for those unfamiliar, are musical works based on being as minimal as possible-- finding the least possible thing necessary for listening. These pieces tend to be drone in nature.

Constant 23 is designed for endless loop play for hours of seamless enjoyment. Treetrunk Records really enjoys this version of Constant, and hopes you will, too.... Topics: ambient, longform

In the year since releasing Complex Silence 15, I've gone through a personal crucible. Extreme emotional pain. Lest you think I am going to cry and moan, don't fret. It seems my emotional pain, when I bear down on it and really feel it and sit with it, drives me to creativity. Of course, I'm not unique among artists, writers, poets, or musicians. Some might even dare to call my emotions an obsession, but I still have both ears and all my fingers.
